Netizens witnessed a social media war between father-and-son Cesar Montano and Diego Loyzaga.
According to Loyzaga, he was threatened by Montano that he himself will ask the police to arrest him for using illegal drugs.
In a series of Instagram posts, Loyzaga called his dad a hypocrite and a liar.
He wrote: “Ito ka [Cesar Montano]#sakaypa !!! Padamputin mo na ako, lagyan ako ng karatula diba iyan ang sinabi mo? Kaming dalawa ng kapatid ko? Mag malinis ka na, sakay ka na sa kanila pero sariling mong anak di mo ipagtatangol. Sarili mo lang!”
Loyzaga confessed that he had submitted himself to a series of drug tests, which all came out negative; however, according to him, Montano insisted that he was using illegal drugs.
“Magaling, best actor ka nga! Ano pang gusto mo? Drug test? DNA test? Ako ba talaga anak mo? Ilan ba talaga kaming anak mo? Baka hindi ka pa sigurado. Pinapalayas mo pa ako sa bahay na iniwan mo para sakin. Samantalang wala ni isang piso hiningi ko sayo mula bata pa ako. Pang limang drug test na ipinagawa niyo sakin LAHAT negative pero lakas pa rin ng loob mo na pag bintangan akong adik.
“Ano pa ngayon? Ano pang intriga gusto mong gawin? Ramdam na ramdam ko nga na mahal mo ‘ko. Salamat. Makadiyos ka pa? Panay simba ka nga pero wala kang ginawa kung hindi gumawa ng kasalanan. I think I speak on behalf of all my siblings. Sana lumabas lahat ng baho mo. Duwag! – Written by the ungrateful child who was denied by his father. So really am I an ungrateful ‘child’ because to him, I am not even his child.”
In another post, the 21-year-old actor posted screenshot from his dad’s Instagram post that said he (Montano) already paid for the tuition fee of his daughters.
He captioned the post, “Salamat naman sa dyos pinagaral mo ang mga anak mo. Karapatdapat lang naman ata ng isang ama gawin yun eh no?
“Pangako mo sakin? Nasaan na? Ayaw mo pa gawin to sa social media? Eh ako din ayoko sana pero puro ka hocus pocus. Daig mo pa magician. Wag ka nalang sana mag satsat kung di mo tutuparin.
The actor then attacked his dad for rejecting him since he was born.
“Sa lahat ng nakakabasa nito, iisipin niyo siguro wala akong respeto kasi ama ko iyan. Pero sana tandaan niyo na mula ng pinanganak ako ng nanay ko eh dineny na ako niyan hangang ngayon! Kaya siguro puwede ako magsalita ng ganito.”
Then, in his other post, Montano was seen posing with PNP general Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa with the caption “hypocrite.”
In another post with the words “Come At Me Bro,” Loyzaga wrote: “Asahan niyo na pag ako nawala bigla o makita niyo nalang ako sa news na pinatay ako dahil daw drug adik/pusher o kaya na accidente at namatay, alam niyo na kung bakit.”
Because if these following tirades, many netizens speculated that the Instagram of Loyzaga was hacked since they were written in Tagalog. However, the actor posted another message and clarified that he was the one who posted the rants.
He then wrote:
“COMMENT PA SIGE. SHOWBISS LANG PALA AKO?? Ka tagal tagal ko ng na nanahimik tungkol dito pero kahit sinong tao napupuno din!!! @cesar_montano”
He further posted more pictures and words in which Montano was tagged, before deleting them hours later.
Montano, who was appointed as the DOT Tourism Promotions Board Chief Operating Officer in 2016, has yet to speak about his Loyzaga’s tirades.
